Inter-Faith Ministries builds a strong community by facilitating interreligious collaboration, encouraging understanding, and providing basic human needs. Inter-Faith Ministries (IFM) aids homeless and marginalized persons in our community by fulfilling basic human needs, shelter, food, and moral support. It provides a safe place to stay and access to community services that will enable them to become self-sufficient or find the resolve to try. Every year Inter-Faith Ministries serves thousands of people in need of food and shelter. IFM offers encouragement, guidance, reinforcement and most importantly hope for tomorrow. Hope is the inspiration that we all need. Many of the people we serve have lost hope in the face of unemployment, medical problems, poverty, and eviction. Community partners, volunteers, friends, and donors enable IFM to help people back on their feet. It is through one another that we help others help themselves.
Inter-Faith Ministries operates two homeless shelters. Inter-Faith Inn shelter help individuals, single parents, and families in need. Ti'Wiconi Safe Haven shelter serves the chronically homeless suffering with mental illness and other disabilities. During the winter IFM operates a seasonal shelter, Warming Souls, for homeless men and women not staying at a permanent shelter from November through March. 104 low-cost apartments assist in the transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency. Residents receive case management while at the apartments. During the holidays assistance is available to those living at or below the poverty level through Operation Holiday. Helping 13,000 men, women and children living in and around Wichita with non-perishable food items, vouchers for fresh food, gently used coats and new blankets, scarves, gloves and hats.

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive. - Dalai Lama
Our hearts are heavy when we think about the tragic loss of life in Baghdad, Beirut, the West Bank and Paris in just the last week. Terrorism affects us all, and it knows no boundaries. We pray for the families of victims, we pray for the end to violence, and we pray that we not blame or condemn any entire race or religion for the actions of a few.
